Tearing into 2021 with formidable dexterous drive, 2nd Generation WU (composed of the sons of the Wu-Tang Clan) are releasing their new full length debut, HEREDITARY, today via Dock Street Records. The group of emcees pioneered by iNTeLL (son of U-God) and PXWER (son of Method Man) has crafted a record that honors the classic R&B-spliced samples and gritty flow of ’90s Wu-Tang while blending it seamlessly with booming bass, trip-hop vibes, and the radical production of modern rap.
With Hereditary, 2nd Generation WU expands their legacy that is already well underway. The Fall of 2020 saw their latest single “Heaven On Earth” debuted on Substream Magazine with the previously venerated singles “7.O.D.(featuring Young Dirty Bastard and SunGod),” “New Generation (featuring Method Man),” “Soothe The Soul (featuring Jackie Palladino),” and “Legacy Drip,” backing it up. Adding to the band’s deep-rooted impact, CBS influential news magazine Inside Edition chronicled the origins of the group in a feature last year.
Teaming up with Staten Island, NY-based Dock Street Records owner Ettore Mazzei, 2nd Generation WU are looking forward to the new stage in their continuation of the Wu legacy. “Every few years, Hip Hop reaches within itself to bring out something new,” they explain. This nostalgic sound from the new generation became what we now know as 2nd Generation WU, expressing the greatness embedded in their DNA as they formulate their own ways to uplift and educate the masses through longevity and timeless music.
